This pilot program is a collaboration between UGAR and the Associate Dean for the Arts & Humanities. Faculty with appointments in the arts and humanities are invited to submit an application for funding for undergraduate researchers to work on a specific project or set of projects in the 2019-2020 academic year. The goal is to give faculty the opportunity to plan ahead to identify students and develop a timeline for their scholarly and creative projects in the arts and humanities. Faculty who are awarded funding through this program will select undergraduates to assist on their projects. Student researchers will be paid stipends rather than wages, so the students must derive some academic benefit from the work they do on the project. Students may be responsible for some rote or administrative tasks, but the expectation is that they are intellectually involved in the project and learning about a field of study in the arts and humanities.
